An email filter is a software app that runs on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages to obstruct any unasked-for ones from entering a particular inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your computer. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they spot some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five separate levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or allows it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either get rid of unasked-for emails or re-send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them once again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited email messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also tweak the level of protection with several clicks if spam emails continue to appear in your mailbox or the spam filter starts deleting genuine email messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased instantly or forwarded to another mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit a message that you need. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
